'Tis the Season of Giving

From knitting up hats, mittens and scarves for those without to financially supporting Interval House, The Table Community Food Centre and YAK Youth Services, members of CFUW Perth & District are helping out.


On a very miserable and cold day last week, with high winds and rain, Elaine Brazeau, Linda Chaim and Isobel Boyle stood on the bridge over the Tay River in downtown Perth hanging hand-knit mittens, hats and scarves in plastic bags for people to take.


Members are encouraged to bring bags of mittens, hats, socks and scarves throughout December and January and continue the "Toques are smitten with mittens" tradition. Place your knit or purchased item in a plastic bag, indicate the size (child, woman or man), and add the following note in the bag if they wish:


I am not lost. If you need this gift to keep you warm, please take it and wear it.

With Love and Warmth.

(Please pay it forward if you can)


November was also a busy month for the Social Justice Committee, with $500 cheques delivered to Lanark County Interval House and Community Support, (left) an agency that has been providing safe emergency shelter for women and children fleeing domestic violence,

YAK Youth Services, a social service agency focusing on supporting the youth of Perth and The Table Community Food Centre, dedicated to providing healthy food, improving food skills and food literacy.




CFUW Perth & District's fundraising efforts to support Community Outreach continues!
